Hearing care is just as important as dental and vision care.

Did you know:

  • Hearing loss can mean a higher risk of Alzheimer’s – higher rates of cognitive decline found in untreated hearing loss
  • Hearing loss can red flag cardiovascular diseases
  • Even untreated mild hearing loss can lead to depression
  • Hearing loss is the most chronic health condition affecting older adults

I’m very satisfied with the service Maura Chippendale and her office have provided. She explained everything in detail and when I brought my wife in she answered all of her questions.

Norman S. of Saint James City, FL
Wonderful experience! My mother has dementia. Maura Chippendale was professional, thorough and patient. My mother has a through exam and had her current hearing aids re-adjusted. We were not rushed. Maura Chippendale took great care to explain everything to my mother and myself. I would recommend Chippendale Audiology.
Nivea S. of North Fort Myers, FL
Very professional, pleasant, reassuring.

My experience with Chippendale Audiology has been 100% positive. Office staff & audiologist are warm, welcoming and very knowledgeable. Always accessible & ready to answer questions, quell fears & remedy a problem. Would recommend to friends & family.
Lorraine S. of Cape Coral, FL
I liked the patient explanations of Maura as she “walked” me through the usage of my Oticon Alta Pro aids. They looked and felt quite different from my old Oticon Synero’s. I really liked the fact that I was seen again shortly after purchase and will again be seen in 6 months or anytime needed in between – gives comfort & confidence!
Nancy T. of Saint James City, FL
I liked Maura’s low-key but very knowledgeable explanation of the patient’s condition and possible choices to remedy them.

I like the replacement hearing aids I am using now and the time and care the audiologist took in giving me the new hearing aids. My hearing is much better now.

Marlene L. of Cape Coral, FL
For ten years, I have had fluctuating hearing in the left ear and tinnitus. Several months ago, I began to lose hearing in both ears and needed new hearing aids. That is when I went to Chippendale Audiology and met Maura Chippendale who has been exceptional in testing with the latest equipment and explaining tests and what is going on. I purchased new Oticon/Alta hearing aids with ConnectLine equipment which has been customized for me. It takes time to adjust to everything and Maura is very patient. Office is well run by Becky.
Pat E.
I have been wearing hearing aids for 40 plus years and basically don’t hear anything without my aids. I have been wearing Oticon aids for a number of years and recently purchased the Oticon/Alta aids. At that time, I received literature about Oticon/ConnectLine and decided it sounded like something that would be helpful for me. Chippendale Audiology was very helpful getting me set up to use it. ConnectLine has definitely improved my quality of life. I can now hearing clearly on the land line phone and can use a cell phone for the first time. Listening to TV is very clear, I can move around, and I can converse with others while watching TV, which I couldn’t do with TV Ears. I would definitely recommend Oticon/ConnectLine to anyone who is hearing impaired.
Jane M.
What took me so long? I was just not sure I was “ready” for hearing aids – I was only 60 years old! The mounting frustration of not hearing all the conversations during client meetings, not getting all the latest at gatherings with friends and having to ask my wife to repeat the simplest of day-to-day conversations became too overwhelming. I was “working” too hard at listening. Once I decided to investigate hearing aids, two fantastic things happened to me: 1) I was referred to the right Audiology practice. The interaction could not have been more pleasant and supportive. 2) Oticon Delta, behind the ear hearing aids, had just hit the US market. The Oticon Delta system was designed with me in mind! I am back to enjoying conversations in all types of noise environments. I would encourage anyone who is experiencing the same frustrations as I was…do not wait!
Richard Bennett
I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my Oticon hearing aid. I had forgotten how much I was not hearing until, within seconds, I was hearing everything again! I really don’t even know that it’s in my ear. It’s made a great difference in my ability to communicate with people, and I feel confident in how I respond!
L. Simon
I was in a committee meeting, 12 people in a circle. Suddenly realized I could hear every voice. I have Oticon Epoq Hearing aids. I suddenly realized that I felt truly normal as in the old days before losing my hearing. Quite a miracle. Not straining – not asking over. Hearing everything! Just wanted to tell you how much you are appreciated!
A. Kelly
So far I’ve been pleased with my Oticon Delta. I’ve had it for a couple of months. Comfortable in every way. Would recommend it to any one to have.
P. Boller
I have had hearing aids for 6 years, but what a big difference with the new Oticon Dual. No feedback from telephones, earphones or other devices like that. Eat out and actually hear the person across the table and not just all the other noise. In the car you can hear your wife talking or the radio an not just the road noise. Also, they fit so good I don’t even remember that I have them on. You don’t know what you are missing until you have tried them!
L. Bal
I just purchased the Oticon Dual device and am extremely pleased. I have had an Oticon hearing aid in the past, but it was an in-the-ear. This Dual is so great, I hear better, there is little background noise; even in a crowded room I can still hear the people around me. It is so comfortable that when I go to bed I almost forget to take it out. I couldn’t be more pleased. My Audiologist was terrific. She made the whole experience so pleasant.
A. Fee-Meyer
Thank you so much for your kindness, patience and clinical expertise. Dad was very calm and secure in your presence. As you know, the frustration that is felt by the patient, utmost, as well as their family is difficult at best. The desperation that he experienced by the extreme hearing loss and inadequate product was exasperating for him. The fact that there was something available to him to even make his day to day existence more enjoyable has been profound. His youngest grandson (age 6) asked mom “what did they do to Grandpa while he was in Florida because he can hear me?” Dad has been thrilled and has enjoyed hearing long lost sounds and conversations. He has enjoyed hearing things that he “shouldn’t hear” as he says. It brings me great joy to be on the receiving end of such “quality care”.
C. Auskamp
I still continue to be surprised at the amazing capabilities of these [Epoq] hearing aids. Twice lately I have been at a long table with probably eight on each side. I could enjoy and participate in the conversation on both sides down….I can hear the TV without closed captioning at the normal hearing volume…I cannot believe how lucky I am to have found you and these hearing aids. It is just an incredible dimension that they have added to my life.
A. Kelley
It’s absolutely amazing how much conversation I missed prior to purchasing the Oticon Delta device. I was unaware of what I was missing due to my hearing loss. I can now hear as well as understand what is being said in a group situation.
Tom Kruty
Whenever I need to make an important decision, I try to take the time to evaluate my options. Most certainly the selection of the most appropriate hearing aid warrants such consideration. After checking with other consultants and products, I had the good fortune to respond to an ad placed by your practice in our local newspaper. I found this organization to be the most professional of all and they provided the best product in their new Oticon Delta device. I have been impressed with the quality operation they run. I won’t hesitate to recommend them to my friends if the need arises for their service.
Stan Smith
I am pleased to report great success with the Oticon Delta hearing aids that you recently fitted me with. They are the only hearing devices that I have ever felt comfortable wearing and you have adjusted them to my complete satisfaction. I would not hesitate to recommend the practice and these instruments to anyone with partial hearing loss.
William S. Dunn
I knew my hearing had gotten bad again but didn’t realize how much until the current test graphs were shown to me. Now I hear the ticking of a clock that I had never heard before. The Deltas are so comfortable that I forget they are there. It is a nice fringe benefit that no one can see them unless I want them to. I have recommended them to several people already. They are wonderful!! Maura, thank you for your patience and training. I will make an appointment for the end of June, before my cruise.
Dona Crisman
I am happy to share my reactions regarding the purchase and use of Syncro hearing aids. Included in positive outcomes are: Increased technology proficiency. A. Easy selection of functional in-puts to select appropriate mode for maximizing audio. B. Use of computer by Audiologist to add and delete a range of choices according to individual needs. A realization that there is no “miracle cure” resulting in a return to completely normal hearing makes one even more appreciative of any increases in competency of hearing. However, I have experienced better communication in individual and group areas, as well as appreciation of inputs in all areas of listening in leisure time. The end result is a better life style.
Dr. William N. Goodwin, Ph.D.
I would like to tell you how happy I am with my hearing aid. As a child I knew that I had trouble hearing and was advised that nothing could be done for me due to scarring on the middle ear. Two years ago, after my hearing was checked and much to my amazement you stated that a special hearing aid could restore my hearing! Now I don’t have to strain when listening to people speak. I can hear birds, footsteps, automobiles, and so much more. Thank you again. I deeply appreciate your help.
Joyce Morris
You have heard me say several times how much I like my Oticon hearing aids. Let me comment on two of the many changes they have made for me and my family… …My hearing aids are in my ears, not in the drawer. My earlier hearing aids never performed as well as the Oticon aids… Now I can hear. Wearing the hearing aids is now part of morning dressing. (Prior to getting the new hearing aids) I could not hear well (and) I would sometimes make comments out of context with others conversations. That is no longer a problem. I enjoy fully participating in conversational gatherings. Thank you for the professional assessment of my hearing problem and the very careful fitting and programming of my Oticon hearing aids. I like my hearing aids! I can hear!
Jack Martin
Hearing aids have been a part of my busy life for many years. The excellent Oticon [Syncro] product combined with the meticulous care taken to fit them properly has vastly improved my ability to communicate. Friends have mentioned that my conversation is normal again because I can hear and respond.
Eleanor Henry
I would like to add my testimonial to the continuous high level of complete satisfaction you have provided us for our hearing problems over the last 17 years. My wife has been a patient of yours for all those years, while I am a newcomer in the last year or so. I felt very confident in choosing you for my hearing needs also. We will continue to place our trust and confidence in your abilities and experience. I will continue to recommend your services to those in need for hearing services. Respectfully
Arnold and Evelyn Andersen
I’m not a stranger to hearing aids, but I have never had one for each ear or the digital variety. I’m retired and cost can create second thoughts. I tried wearing two Oticon Syncro canal aids for sixty days with the understanding I was not obligated to purchase. After three visits to the audiologist for sound adjustments, I was having a love affair with my new world of hearing. I identified sounds I hadn’t recognized before and had to have two home appliances repaired. I’m hearing songbirds outside and I can hear at meeting when people speak softly. I no longer make inappropriate replies, the TV isn’t screeching and church music sounds heavenly. Background noise is not overwhelming. After living with only one hearing aid for years, I now live in a world of stereophonic sound and feel I’m worth it!!
Jo Basler
Efficiency & professionalism. Options clearly explained. Thank you.
Barbara R. of North Fort Myers, FL
Explained everything very well so I could understand what is wrong and what is needed to fix it.

Definition of Audiologic Care

Audiologic Care is the protection, preservation, evaluation and treatment of the hearing and balance functions of the human audio-vestibular system, and is provided ONLY by audiologists, either individually or as part of a health care team, who use their professional skills to improve the quality of life for each patient.

If you want to maximize the chances of improving your hearing, see an Audiologist.

Who should use Hearing Technology?

Anyone who wants to keep their hearing at its utmost best. There is no specific age level or social level that dictates the need for good hearing. We all deserve to hear well to stay connected, stay engaged and to enjoy life.

Hearing health is just as important as our vision and oral health. Routine check-ups help keep our hearing working at its best.

The Importance of Hearing

Good hearing allows us to communicate effectively. It allows us to work efficiently, to socialize and make connections with each other. Hearing allows us to interact with the world and alerts us of changes in the environment.

Hearing is a critical sense that impacts every aspect of our lives and because of that, it is important that our hearing be maintained so we can be at our best.

Working with an Audiologist

Every hearing loss is unique and every patient has their own needs. Hearing aid fitting must be personalized, taking into account not only the patient’s hearing loss, but also their listening situations, hearing needs, personal preferences and budget.

With regards to hearing solutions, one size does not fit all.

Why Chippendale Audiology?

We have been serving Lee County for over 28 years in the Cape Coral, providing second-to-none audiological services and fitting a complete line of hearing devices that meet our customers’ needs, lifestyles and budgets.
